Medanta Department of
Transfusion Medicine (Blood Bank)
An Overview
transfusion medicine
    Transfusion Medicine Specialists deal with the transfer of blood or blood products from one person (the donor) into another person's (the recipient's) bloodstream. Transfusion of your own blood (autologous) is the safest method but requires planning and not all patients are eligible. Directed donor blood allows the patient to receive blood from known donors. Volunteer donor blood is the safest.

    The endeavour of the department is to supply safest possible blood components. The safety begins with diligent check of donor's medical history and physical examination. The tests for HIV 1 & 2, Hepatitis B & C, Malaria and Syphilis are done using best of technology and methods. There is an additional layer of safety in testing called Nuclear Amplification Technology (NAT). There are few blood centres in the country which use this testing technology. There are advance technologies like Universal Leucodepletion, Irregular Antibody Screen, etc to reduce the chances of adverse reactions to the patient.

    We perform therapeutic apheresis procedures in patients suffering from certain neurological disorders like Myasthenia gravis, G B Syndrome, etc. The department is also part of stem cell harvest, their cryopreservation and infusion as part of the stem cell therapy for variety of disorders.

    Blood donors can request their test reports online, please send an email at bloodbank.lab@medanta.org
